Webb, Gausman pairing provides an advantage vs the Dodgers in Game 5

0 12

This is exactly the way the Giants drew it up.

Yes, they would have, obviously, preferred to win Game 4 and the NLDS vs. the Dodgers on Tuesday night, but the Giants head into a fifth and final game of the series in an optimal position.

On the mound to start the game is Logan Webb, his devastating three-pitch arsenal, and the three Red Bulls he drinks before each game.

Webb was marvelous in Game 1, going 7 2/3 shutout innings and striking out 10 in the process.

The Giants could have pushed Webb onto the mound Tuesday on short rest, but with a game advantage, they wanted to set up a situation where Webb pitched the biggest game of the year, and arguably the biggest game in Giants-Dodgers history, which dates back more than 130 years.

Ideally, the man who started this thing will end it.

But because it’s 2021, it’s hardly expected that Webb is going to go nine Thursday.

A Giants ace might finish the game, though.
